It was a long day for Nicholas and I yesterday with Mama out on a whirlwind tour showing homes. We were up at 5:30 am, me to check out my yard to be sure no deer or other critters had stepped foot on my private property while I slept and Mama to check overnight emails on the computer and fine tune the detail sheets of the tour. That lazy Nicholas didn’t get up until almost 7:30 but what else would be new? Daddy’s an early bird; if he’s not at his office by 6:30 he thinks he’s late!
Good thing my good friend Robin came by to stay with us! She arrived at 7am. I just love Robin; she’s so kind and friendly, always gives us treats and a nice rub. (She also makes Nicholas and I a piece of toast in the mornings, are we spoiled or what? Nicholas is a very fussy eater but he loves Robins toast!)
Mama left the house for the tour at 7:45am and didn’t get home until 6:30pm! Whew, what a day! She showed houses from Charlotte Country to Saint John, Rothesay to Quispamsis. She was beat but still smiling when she saw her boys! We were so happy to see her, jumping all around and Nicholas was spinning round and round and even jumped up on her (which we’re not allowed to do). Mama pushed him off and said “Four on the floor, Nicholas! I don’t jump on people because I’m sooooo big I might flatten them! If I stood on my hind legs I’d be as tall as most people, probably taller than Mama! Whoa!!!
Daddy knew Mama was going to have a long day so he kicked in and had a nice supper going for all of us! Mama put her feet up and told us about her day and the lovely people she was with, how enjoyable it was to show them such gorgeous properties, made the day just fly! Nicholas started bellyaching about her being away for the day but I said, “Cool it Dude, she’s rarely away all day and like Grampy Wiggins always said, “Those that don’t work, don’t eat and if she sells one of those nice houses it means we’re eating well for another month, so you just smile, try to look sweet and say “Good Luck Mama”!
